Forum: GratefulDead Subject: "The dead" originals

anyone out there like their original material they performed live? I ask because sirius is playing "self defense" right now and it is pretty bad. Personally I'm not too familiar with their original stuff and would love some thoughts. There's one tune I did like but unfortunately can't think of it.

" Mickey singing is indeed an acquired taste."

In that case, why not release his original 1972 solo version of Fire On The Mountain? It will fit right in with all of the rap and hip-hop stuff being pushed by the record companies? Who, and what is that? The bootleg version is still blowing a few minds. Nobody expects an old Grateful Dead man to sound like today's Eminem...

I do Give Mr. Hart Props for being a world music guy, as well as branching out away from the Grateful Dead. I'm not loading up the CD changer with his stuff, but he does have a point about "beating a Dead Horse" regarding his colleagues. Blasphemy, I know, but I appreciate that he's not clinging to Drums/Space for the rest of his life. Neither is Bill, for that matter. More power to them.

Indeed when I first heard that Fire many years ago, I must say I was impressed and with all the authority bested in me proclaimed him the godfather of rap. Still not sure why no one agrees with me :}.

I hate to speak ill of the Dead, but those tunes were pretty lame.

Oh, Burrito Man, did you dose me without warning in '82?

I love the screen name. It actually makes me hungry for parking lot scene food.

My apologies if you are a regular, but I had not noticed your name before- good one.

My screen name honors both a cat and a dog, neither of whom cared much about the Dead, or Mickey's singing.

I saw "the Dead" once. Only once for a reason after that.

'82? Wasn't me. I climbed on board 05-30-83 (JGB) in Hartford. If you'd said late '80's,I may have been your "paperboy".I've been an ir-regular here for less than a year. I don't post too often, just kinda follow along.
